I'd like to see a bike in it. I like the design. Will it balance ok with a bike in it? Good Work!

It looks good! Will it hold a bike though? It looks like it might tip if there's a bike there...

Oh man, tino. That glue with the purple can does a number on me! You have kept it compact, though... it should be strong. Keep us updated on the progress!

Very nice.
I could do with one that fits in a bench vice. Will have to get the little grey cells working. Sad
Is there anything you would do differently if you made another one?

Wow I like this one! Main reason is that it is light but strong! Also it lets the crank clear the stand itself so one can pedal the bike with their hands. Very awesome job Tino!!! Smile
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

That is a great design Tino!

I got a question though. Is the stand anchored? I can't figure out how it can balance the bike without being anchored. Did I miss something?

Thanks,
Steve

Wow $8 for the work bench, . . . it must have been on sale for that price because I'm sure I couldn't even buy the materials to build one for that price. Smile

When I made my homemade bike stand out of 1/2" black steel pipe, I think I spent around $20 or so in materials, but it was designed to be clamped in my vise jaws.

Well, I already have the workbench! Maybe I'll start on building the PVC stand so that I don't have to use my bike trainer for a work stand. Or, I could just quit being a cheapskate and go and buy an inexpensive repair stand.

Super nice job, Tino.
